Come and Try
The Toowoomba Pistol Club offers a Come & Try experience for those interested in trying out the sport of pistol shooting. This offered subject to demand and the availability of qualified Range Officers.
PLEASE NOTE: This is focussed on teaching the basics of pistol shooting as a sport and is not a "shooting gallery" type experience.
During the Come & Try you will have the opportunity to experience several styles of target pistol shooting including air pistol, 50 rounds from a 22 pistol and some larger revolver and semi-auto pistols supplied by the club.
Each person participating is individualy supervised at all times by a Range Officer or Club Member standing at their shoulder.
There is also an opportunity to try a centre fire caliber pistol for those that are interested.
While everyone who does a Come & Try finds the experience fun, please note that it is intended to be a genuine introduction to the Club, pistol shooting as a sport and the process involved in joining the club and getting licensed. It is not a "shooting gallery" type experience and may be quite different from private pistol ranges offering "off the street" shooting experiences.

Come & Try is open to everyone over the age of 11 provided the necessary paperwork is completed and photographic identification can be provided. All participants must complete a Form 33 prior to shooting. This Form restricts some individuals ability to use a pistol.
